"the wall street journal" gave a report that the amount of spending under the obama administration and a timeout to say was the slowest rate of growth, and even that's not sure. the reason i'm in this whole situation run of congress is because this country has turned in the wrong direction. this country is turned away from the middle class and forgot what made this gray. it's not fair anymore and people understand they are not getting the same opportunity. it's time for the country to dream big again and believe in the middle class and bring people forward into the middle class. we need to educate our children. we need to rebuild infrastructure, communication and transportation structure. we have to take care of older people and make sure we all have an opportunity to succeed. this election is about fairness, opportunity and the selection is who will have the site envisioned to go forward and ask for your vote. >> moderator: on behalf of or sponsor any error he new hampshire and wbin come would like to thank the candidates and you for joining us for this evenings deb

of governing than the country had become accustomed to. and raised a lot of the themes that governor romney is raising. there are two different cats, reagan and romney. and at the same time, jimmy carter and obama are not exactly alike except philosophically to a large degree that they are. so that election was reminiscent of this one. here's what's changed. it's inescapable now. it's on the air 24/7. on our cable, on their cable, on local access. it's especially on the screen behind me, the computer screen. you can't sign on in the morning to go to your favorite web site without getting some kind of political dialogue. so i think people feel like they are caught in a tsunami of information, not all of it advancing their understanding of how they can best make a decision on behalf of their family and behalf of their country. a lot of it seems to be kind of campaign noise. that's what's different. >> we have so many polls, tom. they seem to be coming from every which angle, every which organization. how much do you think polling affects the way people will vote? >> not much. i think it may r

is the candidate -- they've got big plans, we're living in a polarized, divided country, how are you going to get anything done? and we came close two years ago, i'm not totally persuaded if they tried that again, which is really what i think obama envisions they'd do any better than they did last time. i think we'd probably kick the can down the road. with romney, he does what the market demands. and the market is not demanding a tea party president. so i think he'd shift over toward the middle where i personally think that's where his soul is, so to be honest, i'm guessing about that. >> we're all guessing about that. what is so interesting to us certainly to me is that he didn't go to the center like nixon always says you go to the center in a general election when most candidates do. at the convention, he waited till that first debate and certainly in the third debate he completely blew apart this perception of mitt romney as hard right neo conservative. >> and you know, if you think he's an opportunist, and i'm not sure he totally is, but if you think he is, he's going to do what the incenti
